I found a delightful little box in my bottom turnaround. It was labeled recipes. I sifted through and separated all the hand written ones: This one appears to be my aunt's or grandmother's.

Great meatloaf - and not a lot of work for pretty results too. I used silverbeet (New Zealand spinach) which is darker than spinach and bigger leaves too. I slices the leaves off the ribs and wilted them in a hot frypan and then laid out the leaves on top of beef. I think it made for a nice presentation when it was sliced. I also liked the mozzarella on top for presentation too. Taste and texture was really good too.

This is a really good meatloaf! It was moist and tender but still held it's shape pretty well. I cooked mine for about 1 hour, then added the cheese and cooked for 5 minutes more. It was cool to see the filling rolled up into the meatloaf. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
